Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art that teaches the smaller, weaker individual to defend themselves against larger, stronger opponents. Through the teaching methodology of the Progressive System you will build a strong foundation for the principles and techniques of A Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
The BJJ Progressive System was developed and created by Mestre Sylvio Behring. Progressive guard is a unique series of self defense “techniques” that are used against common attacks while you are on the ground. In fact the system actually contains a series of techniques and positions to protect you and counter attack from the ground. Mestre Behring created the progressive system as a teaching tool to help develop the foundations of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Self-defence for the beginner to the most advanced. The Progressive System is a world-wide awakening to this one of a kind teaching methodology.
There are essentially, three (3) phases to Progressive Guard.
Part A, which deals with basic attacks while you are on your back and your attacker is standing up.
Part B, deals with a series of defences of situations, while someone is actually in your guard, while you are on the ground.
Part C, The final series or “Pass Guard” is just that. In this sequence, the emphasis is more on the attacker, passing the guard of his training partner.
